Default Not the main board, not inverter board...compressor?
Model Number: PFCS1NFYCSS   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years

Hi,
We had power outage after which fridge stooped working.
The fridge fan and lights are operable, but neither the fridge or freezer are cool (both are presently 76 degrees).

I unplugged the fridge but this did not reset it.
Lowering the temp on the display panel didn't work.
Resetting the ice maker didn't work.
I don't know if this model has any diagnostics via the control panel.

I have replaced the main circuit board. No fix.
I then replaced the inverter board. I thought for a moment that the compressor started to cool momentarily, but this didn't fix the problem.

I don't have the capability to replace the compressor. Is there anything I can do to identify the problem before incurring an expensive repair call? I have a multimeter

Thank you

I measured voltages and resistance today.

I have 5 VDC measured at pin 15 on the main board.

I confirmed that the inverter board is receiving this 5 VDC, as well as 118 VAC.

The compressor (VEGY 8H) measured 7.5-9 ohm on all three windings.

As a reminder the freezer and fridge stopped cooling after a power outage.

I replaced the inverter board and main board.

A few minutes after the fridge is plugged in, the compressor runs hot.

Last ditch effort to hear your suggestions on any other components before I blow a lot of money on a service call...
